A manta ray was caught on camera swimming through plastic waste whilst surface-feeding off the coast of Bali.

The footage, captured on January 14, shows the ray ingesting a piece of plastic and later spitting it out.

The filmer writes: "Plastic is a huge problem for wildlife in this area which is the convergence of the Indian and the Pacific oceans.''

According to reports, Bali has recently declared a garbage emergency after the most touristic beaches were inundated by plastic waste.
